Make Yourself Comfortable!

Sedation Saves the Day

If you struggle with dental anxiety, remember that you’re one of millions of Americans who have a fear of dental visits. Sometimes these fears are based on past negative experiences and sometimes they’re just caused by not knowing what to expect. Our team is sympathetic to your concerns and we can assure you that we’ll do our utmost to put your mind and body at ease during your visit. We want to build a lasting relationship with you by providing you with the best, most gentle care available. Every visit to our office starts with a relaxed, welcoming, and home-like atmosphere. Once you’re in one of our treatment suites, we provide a variety of sedation options that we can use individually or in combination with one another, based upon your level of anxiety and the complexity of your treatment. This includes IV sedation. Our goal is to make every procedure as painless and stress-free for you as possible.

Our Sedation Options

When you come in for a treatment consultation, we’ll discuss the sedation options that we have and decide on the right one for your needs. These include:

IV Sedation
IV sedation is administered through an IV and induces a sleeplike state. You won’t feel any sensations during treatment, and you’ll have no memory of it afterward. Many patients who suffer from dental anxiety prefer this option for dental implant placement and other kinds of oral surgery.
Oral Sedation
This is another common choice for dental anxiety sufferers because it also puts you in a sleeplike state and leaves you with no memory of your procedure. You simply swallow prescribed medication before your treatment to get these benefits.
Local Anesthesia
We numb small, specific areas inside your mouth by applying a gel or injecting a local anesthetic into the tissue adjacent to the treatment area.

The Real Dangers of Dental Anxiety

We want you to understand our various sedation options so you can know what to expect when you come in for treatment—and not feel afraid. We also want you to understand that routine dental visits are the least of your worries when it comes to dental health. If you allow fear to keep you from attending dental appointments—or ignoring symptoms you might be experiencing—you put yourself at risk for some potentially serious health problems. Untreated gum disease, as one example, has been linked to heart disease, stroke, and pregnancy complications. The best way to avoid these is to follow a daily dental hygiene routine, visit Bela Family Dentistry for regular dental checkups and cleanings, and contact us immediately for treatment if you have any unusual symptoms. You have nothing to fear when you get your dental care here!

Don’t put off good dental health any longer.
